Councillor Simon Bosher unveils £500,000 scheme to improve congestion on Eastern Road
Councillor Simon Bosher, the council’s cabinet member for traffic and transportation, said: ‘I’m delighted we are making these improvements which should help make journeys that bit easier for everyone, no matter what their mode of transport. ‘Over the years a lot of investment has been put into the M275 entrance and the west of the city and while improvements have been made in the east of Portsmouth, this new project will ensure there is a coordinated vision to maximise the benefits for everyone.’ As part of the work, changes will also be made to the Harvester and Burrfields Road junction following the death of cyclist Tim Atkins.
Cllr. Bosher also took to the airwaves this afternoon on Wave 105 and discussed the scheme and the improvements that will be welcomed by motorists across the city.
